A tRump follower's wish list

I received this email from an acquaintance in another state, and my first reaction was to delete it after reading the first sentence.

But then I thought: this is too good not to share, and where better than here on DU?

There is actually one point one which we agree, but for entirely different reasons -- see if you can pick that one.

Subject: Here is all we want

This is why Trump is zooming ahead. He is at least talking about issues that most Americans are concerned about. My mantra about Trump is this: I am in agreement with most of what he says. I just wish someone else was saying it but support his ability to get things done.
We are getting older and our tickers aren't what they used to be...so here is Our Special Bucket List for 2015,16...
HERE IS ALL WE WANT..
1. Hillary: in prison!
2. Put "GOD" back in America!!!
3. Borders: Closed!
4. Congress: On the same retirement & healthcare plans as everybody else
5. Congress: Obey its own laws NOW!
6. Language: English only!
7. Culture: Constitution, and the Bill of Rights!
8. Drug Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before & during Welfare!
9. NO freebies to Non-Citizens!
10. Balance the budget.
11. Stop giving away our money to foreign countries! Charge them for our help! We need it here.
12. Fix the TAX CODE!
13. IMPEACH the DICTATOR!!
And most of all.
14. "RESPECT OUR MILITARY AND OUR FLAG!!"

We the people are coming!
Only 86% will send this on. Should be a 100%.
What will you do?
Please send it on; if to only one person.


I agree with number 4. Elected Representatives and Senators should be required to participate in Social Security (especially once the income cap is raised). Furthermore, I believe that there should be one health care plan for all Americans: single-payer. OK, number 5 kinda' makes sense too.

I welcome your comments about the entire "bucket list" and will probably ruin someone's holiday by rebutting many of these arguments to the tRump-ite.

1. I'm all for number 8

if we drug test every executive of every corporation that gets corporate welfare, and deny those 'subsidies' if ANY of their execs fail.

And I agree with the letter of number 12, but suspect my idea of 'fix' and their idea of 'fix' are really really different.

2. OK...

1. For what?
2. God is omnipresent.
3. Just like North Korea
4. Invert it
5. Also include the 1% in that, poor people don't get to mow down people in the street and claim "affluenza"
6. So you celebrate America but want the language of another country?
7. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness... but Trump supporters would probably call that socialism.
8. There are far worse things they don't 'test' on
9. That extends to corporations, right?
10. Congress holds the purse
11. Yes, we need it for all those useless drug tests
12. By making it more progressive
13. For what? And how?
14. Yeah, until they get wounded

Every point in that chain email -- debunked.

3. If someone came to me with such a list I'd tell him/her to stick it where the sun doesn't shine

I'm getting pretty damn sick of these people.

5. I'm sick of them, too. To the point that I am feeling like it will become necessary to have an...

 

...ideological confrontation in order to establish what it means to be an American.

6. Two reasons why I keep in touch

1. I'm friends with this guy's kids. Thankful that they haven't inherited his views, I keep in touch with the clan especially over the holidaze.
2. I want to see his head explode when the progressive candidates win not only the White House, but also sweep Congressional elections as well.

OK, there's a third reason, but it's totally evil: I want to outlive him so that there's one less COWGIRL (Conservative Old White Guy Impotently Raging Lunacy) to cast a ballot. It's cheaper than hiring a hit man.

7. That's the Ace in the hold

In the back of my mind, I think President Obama had a "come-to-Jesus" meeting with then-speaker Bohner and Senator McConnell with one -- and only one -- agenda item:
If you impeach me, or anyone in my administration, I will unleash the DOJ on Bush-43 and all his corrupt associates. Including handing any/all of them to the World Court in The Hague.
Perhaps I'm wrong (or naive), but there must be a reason why articles of impeachment have never been introduced. It's the silver bullet.

8. No. 6 would be impractical in Obama's birthplace

 

No, not Kenya, the other one. 'Olelo Hawai'i is an "offical" language there alongside English.

9. How do people that

 

FUCKING STUPID get the correct shoe on the correct foot every morning?

Do they understand the concept behind toilet paper.

Let me speculate that Fix the Tax Code - albeit in a very different way - is your one point of agreement?

10. It was #4, but

I'd also like to see tax rates return to a fairer system.
So, OK: two items.
